Stand up for adoption.

Every child has the right to a nurturing, permanent family. Join us in advocating for adoption by staying informed, using your voice, and educating others about legislation and policies that will strengthen adoption as a positive option for children while supporting expectant parents, birth parents, and adoptive families.

Take Action

Get loud.

Your voice matters. By using it to speak up for positive, sound adoption policies that work in the best interests of children first and foremost, while also protecting the rights of parents and adult adoptees, you can create real, positive change. For more than 40 years we have been advocating for children as a leading voice on adoption issues, providing research-based information to Congress and other leaders that has shaped legislation at the federal and state level. You can be a part of the impact, too. NCFA is a trusted source of up-to-date information on policies and legislation and how they are affecting the adoption community. Use your voice, get loud, and stand up for the rights of children around the world.
